Pink and Green

My second UFO finished for the year! This is a quilt top I bought on Ebay about 3 years ago. I had it professionally quilted with an all over rose design, and all I had to do was bind it. Well, I have finally bound it. :)

It is square, btw. The breeze was blowing when DH took this photo, and I couldn't keep it still.

A Finished Top...Woohoo!....

I finished a Christmas quilt top. Yay! This is the first top (or ANYTHING) I've finished in over a year! So this is a big step in the right direction. Now to just keep the momentum going.

I feel very guilty that I haven't even looked at any UFO's in 2010. I've been working on a quilt for my sisters 60th birthday coming up in early April...I'm nearly finished. The rest of you wonderful 'GIDY' ladies have been working furiously and getting heaps done. I'm very impressed and hopefully your energy & motivation will rub off onto myself.
My friend had a clean out of her sewing room in October last year & she had heaps of projects that she had started & then lost interest & didn't want them anymore. Anyway me being the quintessentional hoarder and who cannot throw anything out, grabbed all of these projects before they ended up in the skip. So I have been working on some of these....hmmm...I wonder if they could be classified as inherited UFO's??????
It is so long since I even looked at my UFO's I cannot recall them all. But I do know that I have an english paper pieced hexagon quilt which needs finishing, a xmas table runner & a bag. So I guess that is a good start to commit to for 2010.
Wish me luck while I procrastinate a little more about which one to I'll pick up to finish first.

alpine village aka gloria loughman quilt done!

Late last year I did a weekend quilt class with gloria loughman that my local pathchwork group in Cohuna had organised. The deal was that we got to do the class really cheaply but the con was that we had to have the quilt we made completed ready to be hung at the Victorian Quilters Showcase in July, but our quilts had to be finished in March so that they could be photographed etc. Yep it sounded easy at the time! In the class I got heaps done and promptly put it away as I had "heaps of time"...lol
Did I??? Of course not!!! It was all of a sudden March and mine wasnt done.
OK then I thought to myself, get to it. SO I did and here is the result. Im actually really pleased with it and Gary is even impressed (which is not an easy compliment to come by I can tell you)
